I just received this email from someone representing herself as an RT journalist. I can’t verify if she is who she says she is, but this is the redacted invitation:
Dear Mr. Shugerman, I am writing on behalf of RT TV – 24/7 English language news station in Moscow broadcasting internationally. My name is XXXX, I am a producer of the panel discussion program called CrossTalk. I have the honor to invite you to our program.
We’re recording it on Tuesday, September 25 at 10 AM ET Details on the topic are as follows:
#NotMeToo? What does the #MeToo movement tell us about the confirmation process of Brett Kavanaugh? Have we given up on due process and the presumption of innocence? Is an accusation now equivalent to guilt? Does an accuser now have the right to determine how an accused is investigated? Nominally speaking, anyone can accuse anyone else of wrongdoing. However, what responsibilities should an accuser accept when making an accusation?
Agree or disagree: The
#MeToo movement is causing deep, dangerous, and maybe irreversible damage to society. It goes without saying that we will be grateful to have you on the program! Looking forward to hearing from you. Thank you very much in advance! ￼
— Sincerely, XXXX Producer CrossTalk RT [phone redacted]
